Sai Spiritual Showers: VOLUME 3  issue 9 thu, Aug 11, 2011
Manifest the power that lies in self exertion! Do not resort to the weak stratagem of imitating others. Instead, absorb the good qualities that others may possess. We plant a seed in the soil. Then, we supply it with the ingredients it needs water, air, manure etc. The seed sprouts; it grows into a sapling; it becomes at last a huge tree. You will notice that it does not become either soil, or manure, or air or water. It makes use of these, but, it sticks to its own nature and grows into a tree. - Sri Sathya Sai
I Live For You: A friend for all without discrimination of any kind, Sathya Sai Baba is the True Friend for all reasons and seasons, The One Who holds you eternally, caring with His all conquering Motherly Love, guiding each and every being through the ocean of life beyond many lives. We have felt ‘this touch’ many a time in this life sojourn, especially at times when our boats were in danger of sinking ... And our wails were ever heard and responded by this Mother of all mothers, but for Whom creation would not have been there... Tune in and listen to His Divine Whisper of Supreme Love as presented by the poetic imagination of Ms. Nupur Chaudhuri, describing the beauty of Beloved Sathya Sai’s eternal assurance, “I live for you”!, originally published in the book of poems, “Mother Sai”.


Our boat was sinking, or so we felt,
We closed our eyes,
And before You, we knelt,
With a wave of Your hand,
You calmed the storm,
In a flash of events,
You took away the tears, the mourn.

We were drowning, or so we thought,
But the touch of Your hand,
Was enough to bring our fears to a naught,
You didn't let a drop splash upon our person,
You came to save us,
Just when we were beginning to think our lot would worsen.

The darkness kept creeping on us, or so we assumed,
'Where is God when we need Him?' we fumed,
And then You whispered, 'Why fear when I am here?'
Our eyes opened,
And there You were standing ever so near,
And we saw a light, of a most wondrous hue,
It surrounded us,
And then became You.

We were falling, crashing, hurtling down, or so we imagined,
We could see the sinister rocks below,
We could hear our screams, the din,
We clenched our fists,
And shut our eyes,
We tried to subdue our fear, our cries,
We tried to show courage, but in vain,
And in our panic,
We even forgot to call out Your name.
Still, the crash never came.

Our eyes opened,
And instead of deathly rocks,
We lay on a bed of love,
We looked straight up at Your smiling face above,
And You said in a voice of unmatched love and kindness,
'My dear child, you may forget me, but how can I?

I live for you,
For your happiness.
Even when you are not looking,
I'm standing right there,
Even when you don't feel it,
You're enveloped in My armour of love and care.

Pain and sorrow are a part of life,
But look once towards Me,
And I'll give you joy,
That's unchallenged by trouble or strife,
For you may not know it,
But I've descended to love you,
A love that's the deepest of deep, and the truest of true…'
